Die With a Million

Die With a Million

In the quest to earn as much money as possible, we often forget what’s really important to us—things that money can’t buy.

We toil our life away behind cubical and don’t feel comfortable to use vacation time—out of fear of being seen as lack of job dedication.

When the deadline is around the corder, we feel embarrassed to take leaves even when our family member is sick. An act that is thought of as disgraceful.

We are under the illusion that we will live better after earning that pay rise. We repeat the cycle to get that promotion and bonus. But then, in the process, we sacrificed our health and our relationships with our kids. As our parents get older, perhaps we won't even have a chance to treasure them properly once we make it out alive.
